Restraint & Seclusion

HBIPS 2 & 3 - Restraint & Seclusion

Mental health providers that value and respect an individual's autonomy, independence and safety seek to avoid the use of restrictive interventions at all times. The use of seclusion and restraint is limited to situations deemed to meet the threshold of imminent danger. When restraint and seclusion are used, such use is rigorously monitored and analyzed to prevent future use. Providers also seek to prevent violence or aggression from occurring in the treatment environment by focusing attention on prevention activities that have a growing evidence base.
